Silly Season...

It really is the sillyseason. The last week at our house has been crazy!!!  Four concerts featuring my two eldest children all happened to be in the one week. It sent not only toddler Tom crazy but moi a little frazzled too. But that's what happens in the southern hemisphere at Christmas time - everything including the school year comes to an end.

Well now that I have those events out of the way I'm getting into the spirit of Christmas. I couldn't resist making these sewn cross stitch ornaments from the Christmas 2011 edition of Cross Stitcher magazine. I only bought it yesterday as a hospital read while my daughter had minor surgery. I came home later in the day and stitched all three in the one evening which is good going for me! Today I have completely neglected the housework and sewn them up. I l.o.v.e. the look.




I have also done a few lines on page 1 of my HAED ("Love" by Marta Dahlig). As you can see Bob too is enjoying my HAED. Apparently cross stitches in frames are really comfortable!

I have also been working on my MB English garden sampler but not enough to post a photo of significant progress.

Happy Silly Season to you all!

My husband recently showed me an article that says you can use your iPhone camera as your only camera and so I have been. Its pictures are awesome.

Love the stitching!
